Susan Lynette Rush

May 28, 1963 to November 22, 2020

Susan Lynette Rush, 57, Lake Havasu City, passed away on November 22, 2020 at her home surrounded by her family.

Susan was born to Margaret Hampton and Walenty Klos. She was raised in the Simi Valley, CA area and in her late teens moved to Aurora, CO. She perfected her culinary skills working 17 years at Furs Restaurant in CO before working with the Aurora School District as a bus driver for 9 years. While driving a school bus Susan met her soulmate Steven Rush and they have been together 21 years. Upon retirement in 2017 they moved to Lake Havasu City.

She loved the mountains of Colorado and camping. She was known as a daddy’s girl to her step-father Gene Kishell who she adored, a selfless hostess and excellent cook. Susan adored her grandchildren and always found time to spoil them. Her dog Jack was a rescue that Susan spent a sleepless night thinking about after meeting him at the kennel. The next day she adopted Jack and they were inseparable. She loved to collect nic-nacs and photos of her family always surrounded the home. Her quick wit, sense of humor and kind heart will be greatly missed.

Susan is survived by her husband Steven; daughters Nicole (Brett Hjelm) Heather and Amanda Massey; grandchildren David and Gavin Heather, Charleigh Hjelm; and her beloved dog Jack.

A memorial service will be held in Colorado after the holidays.
